A few shots from yesterday’s styling session for @annahaymandesigns house. She has the most beautiful collection of art, it was so much fun helping her display it around the house. We talked her into displaying more of her own work too, which is so lovely and unique. It’s amazing how much of a change you can make by shuffling things that you already own around. Our job is so easy when you’ve got a house with so much character and so very many beautiful pieces inside. A few hours in your house and we can shake things up and highlight what’s important to you. What a lovely day we had. Looking forward to seeing the final shoot 🖤
BTW, I’m finding it difficult not to post everything in one day. We got so many amazing shots, I want to fill the grid now! Must. Resist. Filling. Grid. I’ll just stick more in the stories 👌. #walltowallstyle #interiorwarrior #stellarspaces #decorcrushing #finditstyleit #interiorstylists #gallerywallhashtag #styleitdark #interiordesire
My view from over the laptop today ⛪️. I like changing up my surroundings when I’m working on my own, it keeps the creativity flowing. Harriet was on-site in the Cotswolds and I was here, working on things back in London (you know, being intelligent according to Einstein...). p.s. this is a great new brunch spot 👆

I had some fun rearranging my sticks (and old lavender today), mixing in some dried flowers I bought last week. I needed some change in the house and this was an easy place to start. Also, my house smells so nice now 🌿

We wanted an industrial feel in this kitchen and the budget was pretty shoe string. These tiles from @toppstiles look like exposed white washed brick and have such a great depth of texture. The kitchen units are from an off the shelf joinery company, but we upgraded the look by hand painting the cupboards and adding this beautiful brass hardware from @rowenandwren . The big winner in the kitchen though is the @lacanche.officiel range, which we bought on eBay secondhand. Anyone else LOVE a bargain? 🙋♀️ #instakitchen #instahomeflavor #nesttoimpress #myeclecticmix #brassdecor #industrialkitchen #kitcheninspo #apartmentherapy #styleonabudget
So, this tree needed re-potting and then Harriet remembered this zinc beauty out in the garden! Now look at it in this beautiful space.
Also, this is a lower ground floor basement dig which is oozing in daylight thanks to the collaborative efforts with @stephenfletcherarchitects .
Everything was so meticulously planned and laid out to make the most of every bit of natural light. It’s such a bright space, with a warm feel. You’d never know this was once just a load of earth.
Happy Friday, don’t get wind swept!

Oh Maya, you were so very wise. I’m going to do my best to play this over and over in my head.
I snapped this background image last week in @gailsbakery in Ealing. How pretty are these floors? Only the prettiest words of wisdom would sit on top of them so nicely. ✌️ #quotestoliveby #mayaangelouquotes #dosomegood #fridayvibes #gailsbakery #pinkfloor #industrialstyle #simplethingsmadebeautiful #mayaangelou
A little glimpse of sunshine sneaking in this morning (from deep behind the clouds). This is a glimpse of my little kitchen, which has open shelves to keep the modest space as open as possible. I love utilitarian chic, is that a thing? It makes unloading the dishwasher easier too 😂. We’re trying our best to reduce our waste with small steps, so I’ve started buying my girls’ snacks from @thesourceunitedkingdom and keeping them in our old jars. Our shelves are a mix of dishes, snacks and flowers. We’re living our kitchen life exposed...how do you kitchen?

Green and serene 🌿
It’s so important to consider your home’s period features and to work with the bones of your property. We like to know the history of each house and then build with integrity to the period. These built in shutters and huge sash windows were carefully considered when restoring this house. You own a piece of history when you purchase a period property. We like to help that history shine while updating the finishes to reflect your modern lifestyle and tastes.

One of the most important tasks of a designer, in my opinion, is to make every inch of someone’s space relevant and used. In London, we spend quite a premium on our square footage so we might as well use it all! This space was rarely used by Harriet (the other half of Rose + George), so she switched it up and turned this half of her formal reception into an office space. There is so much natural light in the room and the ceiling heights are to die for. This room needed to be used and was becoming neglected. Now it has a new purpose and it’s relevant. Sometimes I think we can become a bit trapped in the way we think about our home. I’m sure there are loads of formal dining rooms all over the U.K. being neglected 363 days of the year. Let’s give these spaces some purpose! What’s your neglected space?

Night night to all on this cold and rainy Sunday night. This little kid’s room was designed for a family who loves to travel. We found this wallpaper from @muralswallpaper and they customised the colours to work with our colour scheme. And how cute is the little sleeping elephant? Sweet dreams all 💤
